North Korea appears to be continuing on a path that will lead to a military strike by the US. It just held a massive rally to show its defiance of the warnings made by the US:
NY POST – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gathered a massive crowd in a square in the nation’s capitol as a public protest in response to President Trump’s vow to meet military threats from the regime with “fire and fury.”
Tens of thousands gathered in Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang on Wednesday, waving their fists in the air and holding propaganda placards aloft.
Photos show white-shirted North Koreans marching through the square as the elite class, dressed in black shirts, applauded as they paraded by.

The regime ratcheted up the tension even more on Thursday by saying it would target the US territory of Guam in the Pacific with a missile attack.
North Korea said it was finalizing a plan to launch rockets over Japan into the waters around Guam, where about 7,000 US troops are stationed.
If N. Korea actually fires a missile in the direction of Guam, whether it’s aimed at the waters around the island or not and even if we shoot it down, I don’t see how the US can avoid a military confrontation at that point.
